CAAS may invest in China airport

CHANGI Airport Managers and Partners (Singapore), the investment arm of the Republic's aviation body, may invest in Lukou Airport in China as it expands operations overseas to benefit from rising travel demand.

Changi will buy as much as 45 per cent of Lukou Airport in Nanjing, east China, for about one billion yuan (S$202 million), China Business News said yesterday, citing Lukou Airport's deputy general manager, Mr Zhang Youfu. An agreement will be signed this year, the report said.

The investment arm of the authority 'has been in contact with Lukou Airport in Nanjing', the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) said yesterday in an e-mail. 'As talks are still in progress and as we are conducting due diligence, it is premature for us to comment on the details.'

The aviation authorities of Singapore and Hong Kong are seeking to invest overseas to expand their sources of income and tap a demand for travel in the region, boosted in part by China's economic growth and emergence of budget carriers.

CAAS, which runs Changi Airport, Asia's sixth-busiest, has stakes in the Juan Santamaria International Airport in Costa Rica, the Jorge Chavez International Airport in Peru and the London Luton Airport, its website said. It is also bidding for stakes in Mumbai and New Delhi airports.

The Hong Kong Airport Authority, which runs Asia's third-busiest air terminal, said last Friday it would invest in an airport outside the city state for the first time.

It will pay 1.99 billion yuan for 35 per cent of Xiaoshan International Airport, which operates Hangzhou city's air terminal in eastern China's Zhejiang province. -- BLOOMBERG NEWS

Greater S'pore-Manila air access on the table: report
By Loh Kim Chin, Channel NewsAsia

SINGAPORE: The entry of Singapore-based budget airlines into the Philippines may trigger a new round of talks for greater air access between the two countries.

That's according to a Dow Jones Newswires report quoting Singapore's envoy to the Philippines Lim Kheng Hua.

Singapore is said to have made a formal proposal for bilateral air-rights negotiations.

Low cost-carriers based in Singapore, including Tiger Airways and Jetstar Asia, are starting to fly to the Philippines.

Up to now, the Singapore-Manila route has been dominated by Singapore Airlines and Philippine Airlines. - CNA/ir

Faster checkpoint clearance using machine-readable passports
By Johnson Choo, Channel NewsAsia

SINGAPORE : Singapore passport holders will soon be able to breeze through immigration checkpoints.

Using an enhanced Immigration Automated Clearance System (IACS), the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) said it would take about 12 seconds to clear each person.

Clearing immigration using the eight-year old automated sytem requires the use of an access card.

But with the enhanced system, Singaporeans will be able to clear the automated gates using their existing machine-readable passports.

Travellers need only scan their document at the self-service kiosk before entering the automated lane.

The system, which will be put on trial next month, then verifies the fingerprint against records kept in a database.

The time taken to clear the checkpoint would be 12 seconds.

At its annual workplan seminar, ICA also announced the use of an Integrated Container Inspection System (ICIS).

Cargo vehicles passing through the Woodlands or Tuas checkpoints will first be subjected to an X-ray scan, which will produce images of its contents.

Next, the cargo will be scanned by a radiation detector for radioactive materials.

ICA said harnessing new technologies for automation would allow its officers to focus on keeping the checkpoints secure.

A 3-D model of a person is one of the new technologies being explored which may be used in the future for more secure immigration clearance.

Called 3-D facial recognition, it captures about 20,000 points of the facial features to create a model, which is then stored in a databank, to be called up for verification.

The system is currently on trial, and ICA said, if implemented, immigration clearance could even be faster than 12 seconds. - CNA/de

Anyone has any pics of the new Terminal 2 Viewing Mall?

Saw the green and glassy exterior of the T2 Viewing Mall from Changi Coast Road. Makes the terminal look new overall, and not some bad upgrading job.

YES YOU SHOULD! The interiors I don't know but the exterior certainly looks done, well done.

And also see just how much more of the departure hall kerbside has been covered by the new leaf shaped roof already...

And what's happening inside the terminal.

And what's going on with the Skytrain upgrade.

hehe so many things to know, so little time. Too bad I ain't got a cam.
